History enthusiast opens new gallery






ANKARA - Turkish Daily News

A new gallery called «anakkale Savaşları Galerisi (Battles of «anakkale Gallery), containing equipment used by Turkish, British and ANZAC soldiers during the «anakkale land and sea battles, opened over the weekend in «anakkale.

The historic treasures held in the gallery are of special interest to Ahmet Uslu, a historian and a resident of «anakkale.

Uslu, now 45, has collected more than 6,000 pieces over the past 20 years, the Doğan News Agency reported. He said he started gathering wartime items including ammunition, military uniforms and the like as a hobby while he was a student at the department of history at Istanbul University.

Uslu has earned his living through a variety of business ventures and all the while continued to collect war memorabilia. In time, his collection numbered 6,000 pieces, and as a result he decided to open a gallery to share his collage of this moment in history with the public.

Uslu converted a building on Demircioğlu St. into a gallery, which opened on Sunday with a ceremony attended by a group of guests including «anakkale Mayor ‹lgŁr GŲkhan, Garrison Commander Cdr. Veysel KŲsele and Onsekiz Mart University Rector Ramazan Aydın.

Mayor GŲkhan, during a speech he gave at the opening, stated that the gallery would shed light on the details of the battles of «anakkale and added, �Each piece in this gallery is rare and has its own story.�

The gallery is open every day. Entrance for adults is YTL 1, while students will be able to view the exhibit for only 50 kurush.


Aanrader voor wie nog op vakantie gaat naar Turkeije
